Power of the Picture Book: Bridging Literacy, Equity, and Centering Our Children Did you know that babies notice race as early as 3 months? Join Colorful Pages Coalition founders Bianca Gragg and Jeannie Curtis as we explore interactive read aloud strategies and early race awareness through a racial equity lens. This training is ideal for any educator, parent, or person with young children (birth through five) in their lives!  Jeannie Curtis is a co-founder of Colorful Pages Coalition. In an ongoing effort to become anti-racist, she began seeking racial equity education for herself and working to ensure that her work as a facilitator of professional development for teachers always has a focus of racial equity in the classroom.  One of Jeannie’s personal goals is to engage the white community in self-reflection about racial identify and to encourage community involvement and giving in racial equity work. Jeannie believes deeply that all children have unique strengths and gifts, and she works with teachers to allow students to take the lead in reaching their incredible potential.  Bianca Gragg is a revolutionary mother and  local Latina therapist who is deeply invested in supporting the healing of others in community as well as her own healing—-recognizing their interconnection. Bianca believes that positively centering and amplifying our youth sets the foundation to heal ourselves and our communities. She is invested in the work of racial equity and anti racism at the personal, interpersonal, and institutional level. *Training will be held at Claxton Elementary School at 241 Merrimon Ave, Asheville, NC 28801* Free child care is available, but registration is required, as we will cap child care capacity at 25 for safety reasons.  Thursday, October 10, 2019 6:15 – 8:15pm FREE! 2 CHCs are available upon request. *Directors* – You can attend ANY training for free if one or more of your staff attends the same training. Contact us at [email protected] or 828.407.2058 for more information! FAQs Is my registration transferable? Things happen! If for some reason you are unable to attend this training after you have registered, you may send someone in your place! Just be sure to let us know ([email protected]). What is the refund policy? Unfortunately, we do not offer refunds for trainings, unless Buncombe Partnership for Children cancels the event. Instead, we do offer ‘credits’ that can be applied to future trainings you wish to attend. To receive credits for future training you must cancel at least 24 hours in advance. You are responsible for contacting us should you wish you transfer your credit to another training. Can I pay with cash or check? If your organization must pay by check, please contact [email protected] All checks are due 72 hours in advance unless otherwise agreed upon. Unfortunately, we cannot accept cash. If you do not have a credit card or feel uncomfortable using a credit card online, consider asking a friend to register you and giving them cash.

Asheville Pizza & Brewing Co. is doing a one-time special screening of Tim Burton's classic film, Big Fish, in their 150 seat dine-in movie theater.  The screening is in honor of award-winning Big Fish author Daniel Wallace who will be the keynote speaker at the Literacy Council of Buncombe County's annual event, Authors for Literacy Dinner & Silent Auction, on October 25th. WIN TICKETS TO THE OCTOBER 25th DINNER WITH DANIEL WALLACE...  The Literacy Council will do a free drawing for a pair of tickets ($190 value) to the October 25th Dinner & Silent Auction in which Wallace is attending.  Be in the theater by 6:50 pm for a chance to win! Learn more about the October 25th event here:  https://litcouncil.com/news-events/authors-for-literacy-event/ Tim Burton and screenwriter John August adapted Wallace's novel to the big screen in 2003 earning numerous award nominations from the Academy Awards, Golden Globes, BAFTAs and many more. The visually stunning film is beloved by audiences for its funny yet touching story that was brought to life through incredible performances by Ewan McGregor, Albert Finney and Jessica Lange.  Don't miss this rare theatrical screening of the film that epitomizes tall tale storytelling in the deep South. MOVIE TICKETS: Tickets are only $3.00.  Buy them here on Eventbrite or at the main bar of our 675 Merrimon Avenue location in North Asheville.  THIS WILL SELL OUT IN ADVANCE! There is a limit of purchasing 6 online tickets per order because people often buy more tickets than actually use thus preventing others from getting to see the movie. MOVIE SYNOPSIS (Running Time = 2 hours 5 minutes): When Edward Bloom (Albert Finney) becomes ill, his son, William (Billy Crudup), travels to be with him. William has a strained relationship with Edward because his father has always told exaggerated stories about his life, and William thinks he's never really told the truth.  Even on his deathbed, Edward recounts fantastical anecdotes.  When William, who is a journalist, starts to investigate his father's tales, he begins to understand the man and his penchant for storytelling. CONTENT GUIDELINE:  Rated PG-13 for a fight scene, mild adult language, a very brief glimpse of bare buttocks and a suggestive reference. Watch this fantastic film in Asheville's original dine-in theater. There are tables in front of our big, cushy theater seats. Order dinner from our huge diverse menu (vegan options!), and enjoy this rare cinematic experience with 140+ other fans of this film. Also, enjoy a huge selection some of the best local beer from the third oldest brewery in WNC! FAQs What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event? There is plenty of parking in front of the building, on each side, and also in a big parking lot behind the building. All parking is free. Asheville Pizza & Brewing on Merrimon Avenue is very easy to find. Only five minutes from I-26, I-240 and Downtown. Should I arrive early? ABSOLUTELY!!!  We strongly suggest you arrive at least 30 minutes early so you can order and get settled into your seat before the movie starts. Can I order food and beverages inside the theater? Yes!  You can order anything from the diverse menu of Asheville Pizza & Brewing and drink any of Asheville Brewing Company's delicious beers!  The menu has pizza, burgers, sandwiches, salads, quesadillas, vegan options and more!  The full menu can be found on our website.   Is there any pre-show entertainment? Doors usually open one hour prior to the showtime with a pre-show collection of unique and funny videos playing before the movie begins. Regulars to our theater always arrive extra early to enjoy our pre-show which changes with each movie. How can I contact the organizer with any questions? Email us at [email protected] if you have any questions. Please do not call our location as the staff who answers will likely not be able to know the answer.  Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event? It isn't necessary.  After you purchase your ticket we will have your name on a list when you arrive, so we really only need the name the tickets were purchased with.  You can also show us the email purchase confirmation on your phone, but you can bring in a printed ticket if you prefer.  Please check in at the ticket counter at least 20 minutes before showtime to find a good seat. We expect a sellout.  Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends? Yes, just make sure they check in with whatever name the tickets were purchased under.

Since the late '80s, Mudhoney the Seattle-based foursome whose muck-crusted version of rock, shot through with caustic wit and battened down by a ferocious low end has been a high-pH tonic against the ludicrous and the insipid. Thirty years later, the world is experiencing a particularly high-water moment for both those ideals. But just in time, vocalist Mark Arm, guitarist Steve Turner, bassist Guy Maddison, and drummer Dan Peters are back with Digital Garbage, a barbed-wire-trimmed collection of sonic brickbats. Arm's raw yawp and his bandmates' long-honed chemistry make Digital Garbage an ideal release valve for the 2018 pressure cooker, its insistent rhythms forcing movement and Arm's sardonic lyrics offering a funhouse-mirror companion to the ever-more-ridiculous news cycle. "My sense of humor is dark, and these are dark times," says Arm. "I suppose its only getting darker." Digital Garbage opens with the swaggering "Nerve Attack," which can be heard as a nod both to modern-life anxiety and the ever-increasing threat of warfare. The album's title comes from the outro of "Kill Yourself Live," which segues from a revved-up Arm organ solo into a bleak look at the way notoriety goes viral. "Im not on social media, so my experience is somewhat limited," says Arm. "But people really seem to find validation in the likesand then there's Facebook Live, where people have streamed torture and murder, or, in the case of Philando Castile, getting murdered by a cop."In the course of writing that song," he adds, "I thought about how, once you put something out there online, you cant wipe it away. Its always going to be thereeven if no one digs it up, its still out there floating somewhere."Appropriately enough, bits of recent news events float through the record"Please Mr. Gunman," on which Arm bellows "We'd rather die in church!" over his bandmates' careening charge, was inspired by a TV-news bubblehead's response to a 2017 church shooting, while the ominous refrain that opens the submerged-blues of "Next Mass Extinction" calls back to last summer's clashes in Charlottesville, although Arm's brutal delivery helps twist it into an indictment. Arm also went back to the pre-Mudhoney era for the titular insult of the stinging "Hey Neanderfuck." "National Lampoon made several comedy records in the 70s, and in one skit someone gets called a 'Neanderfuck,'" Arm laughs. "Ive always loved that insult and wondered why it never became a part of the American lexiconits so brutal. It was high time to use that."Mudhoney's core soundsteadily pounding drums, swamp-thing bass, squalling guitar wobble, Arm's hazardous-chemical voiceremains on Digital Garbage, which the band recorded with longtime collaborator (and Digital Garbage pianist) Johnny Sangster at the Seattle studio Litho. The anti-religiosity shimmy "21st Century Pharisees" builds its case with Maddison's woozy synths. "It adds a really nice touch to the proceedings," Arm says of Maddison's synth parts. And Guy has really learned his way around his machines playing in a synth trio the past few years." The shuffling "Messiah's Lament" is the band's first song in 6/8and it's told from the point of view of a world-weary Jesus. And Digital Garbage closes with "Oh Yeah," a brief celebration of skateboarding, surfing, biking, and the joy provided by these escape valves. "I wouldve really just loved to write songs about just hanging out on the beach, and going on a nice vacation," says Arm. "But, you know, that probably doesnt make for great rock."Mudhoney, however, know what does make great rockand the riffs and fury of Digital Garbage will stand the test of time, even if the particulars fade away. "I've tried to keep things somewhat universal, so that this album doesnt just seem like of this timehopefully some of this stuff will go away," Arm laughs. "You dont want to say in the future, 'Hey, those lyrics are still relevant. Great!'

Description:

Manic Focus is the beat-bumpin’ project of John “JmaC” McCarten, a Chicago-based electronic music producer hailing from the Twin Cities. A multi-dimensional artist with a rowdy style unbound to any one genre, Manic Focus transcends sound waves by fusing soulful blues with heavy-hitting bass, creating a resonating tone that’s entirely his own. Over the last 6 years, JmaC has released five full-length albums, each one a new evolution in sound and approach. He has also completed a slew of official remixes for artists such as GRiZ, The Floozies, Lettuce, Minnesota and Pretty Lights, and released several works with Pretty Lights Music veterans Break Science.

On the road, JmaC has been steadily building his live performance to include additional musicians and elements of production. Jacob Barinholtz is now a mainstay on the drums, and other musical co-conspirators join the two on select dates around the country. He’s also been known to incorporate surprise guests such as Big Gigantic’s Dominic Lalli, GRiZ, The Floozies’ Matt Hill, and Russ Liquid, to name a few. Occasionally, fans are treated to the rare live fusion of Break Science and Manic Focus, taking the stage as Manic Science. Recent live highlights include performances at The Gorge Amphitheater in WA and Red Rocks Amphitheater in CO, both dates as support for Pretty Lights. Summer 2017 has seen performances from Manic Focus at Summer Camp Music Festival, High Sierra Music Festival, Camp Bisco, and Summer Set Music Festival, to name a few.

In the studio, JmaC continues to push himself to new musical limits by incorporating original, sample-free recordings of many up-and-coming musical allies. This is especially apparent in the material from his most recent album, Minds Rising. Released in April 2017, Minds Rising is an infectious encapsulation of Manic Focus' roots in funk, soul, new-era hip hop, and electronic
music. The album is an artful curation of the burgeoning Chicago music landscape and beyond, featuring appearances from cutting-edge hip hop artists, vocalists, producers, and musicians from across the country. Collaborators include Jennifer Hartswick of Trey Anastasio Band, Adam Deitch of Lettuce/Break Science, Russ Liquid, ProbCause, Late Night Radio, and more. Minds Rising is an opus two years in the making, and paints an aural illustration of Manic Focus’ shift from producer to composer — one beat, instrument and verse at a time.

Whether it’s at a small-town venue or a world-renowned music festival on his nationwide headlining tour, you won’t want to miss a Manic Focus throw-down.

TWO NIGHTS W/ SUNSQUABI AT ASHEVILLE MUSIC HALL Genre: Electronic Hydro FunkTickets: adv. $20 // dos. $25 // 2-night $35 // VIP $85Show: 10PM (Doors: 9PM)Ages: 21+ SunSquabi There’s a place, deep in the cosmos, where jam bands and electronic dance music intersect with rhythm-driven funk. You’ll feel like you’re floating here but notlost completely to the atmospheric elements. Instead, you’re tethered to an avant-garde spaceship with Colorado-based SunSquabi on the frequency. This cosmic wonderland is a melting pot of a variety of musical genres and it represents the future of music. A three-piece suit - SunSquabi has been catching the eyes and ears of music fans around the world with their ever-evolving sound in the studio and on the live stage. SunSquabi has gained national attention for their unique way of producing music. The band’s live show can be described as an ‘Electronic Hydro Funk Experience’ that is different every single time out. SunSquabi continues to break down and analyze the expectations of what a “Live-Electronic” band should be. The band unveiled their debut EP with All Good Records, titled, ‘Odyssey’ which featured artists GRiZ and Dominic Lalli of Big Gigantic. Their 2nd EP ‘Deluxe’ was a sophomore success with the label that continued where Odyssey left off. The band has now released 2 singles ‘Just A Little’ and ‘Caterpillar’ ahead of their upcoming 2018 release.Combining the talents of Kevin Donohue (guitars/keys/production) Josh Fairman (bassist/synth) and Chris Anderson (drums). This project is a disciplined and structured group. It takes a seasoned musician to stay in the pocket for the sake of building well-developed lines and climaxes. To do that seamlessly requires patience and skill. “It’s kinda like breathing, honestly. We can communicate directly with each other both verbally and non-verbally, onstage and off.” That connection will take the music collectively where we all want to go.” – Kevin Donohue

CURVE Studios & Garden is celebrating 30 years in Asheville’s River Arts District as part of the RAD Second Saturday Celebration on October 12, 2019. Studios will be open from 10am-6pm with demonstrations, classes, an artist talk, birthday cake and—in keeping with CURVE’s long tradition of “bringing people to art and art to life”—the unveiling of a public art sculpture in the garden. On October 13, 1989, Pattiy Torno bought the Standard Oil Company buildings (circa 1916) at 6 – 12 Riverside Drive to make a punk rock / all ages club called Squash Pile. The club was open from 1990-1991. When Torno renovated the buildings “it was a complete gut job... the roofs, plumbing, electric, heat, doors, windows, everything except the exterior walls needed work”. The fruits of these labors created live/work studios, supporting hot glass, woodworking, photography, ceramics, painting and metal sculpture studios. The floodwaters of 2004 that inundated CURVE changed live/work studios to retail / working studios. In 2005, working with neighboring artists, friendly building owners as well as city and county government, Torno successfully advocated to “name the mile long section of the French Broad riverfront that was already full of artists” as Asheville’s River Arts District. Thanks to the River Arts District Transportation Improvement Project (RADTIP), CURVE has new addresses. Riverside Drive is now River Arts Place. Come see some of the many changes that include new and improved roadways, sidewalks, greenways, bike lanes and public art, all part of the RAD TIP Project. In celebration of 10 years at CURVE, ceramic artist Cassie Butcher will give an artist talk “Unearthing the Soul” from 2-3pm in 5 downstairs. Cassie is one of 11 artists currently working here at CURVE. Silver River Center for Chair Caning, the only chair caning school and museum in the USA, has created an 8 ft tall chair arch to honor Torno’s three decades of contributions to the RAD. Built by chair nerds, Brandy Clements, Dave Klingler, and Lucy Kruesel, the CURVE garden Chair Arch is inspired by a chair arch built in 1877 by the furniture makers of High Wycombe, UK to welcome Queen Victoria. The Chair Arch will be unveiled @ 4:30pm in the garden with a bit of the bubbly. 10am to 6pm: Extended Open Studio Hours • all studios 2pm: Cassie Butcher Artist Talk “Unearthing the Soul “ • 5 downstairs 4 to 6pm: Happy Hour • drinks and snacks in the garden 4:30pm: Chair Arch unveiling • with bubbly in the garden 5pm: CURVE 30th Birthday Cake cutting • 5 downstairs CURVE Studios 30th Birthday Celebration is free to the public.

If you’ve taken Patricia Spangler's (or similar) Introduction to Eco Printing workshop, you know how fun it is to watch what happens when leaves, flowers, seeds, roots, and bark are exposed to water and heat. The unique “signature” they leave behind is fascinating and beautiful. In this intermediate-level workshop, Patricia will take your eco printing skills to the next level. In addition to employing basic eco-printing techniques, you will learn to apply color from natural sources, including cochineal (fuschia), osage orange (yellow-orange), and logwood (blue-purple). While white backgrounds are wonderful, you’ll love the transformation color creates! After you sample various colors and methods, you’ll pick your favorite combination and use it to create a one-of-a-kind 14" x 72" silk scarf. Previous eco printing experience strongly encouraged.

Join us for the seventh annual CiderFest NC fundraiser, featuring ample tastings of hard cider, mead and apple wine, along with artisanal food, live music, workshops, a kids zone, and more along the scenic French Broad River. As the largest annual fundraiser for the nonprofit Green Built Alliance, the al-fresco event will be held during the peak of fall colors and the height of this area's busiest tourism season from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 12, 2019 at our new, improved and expanded venue of Carrier Park, 220 Amboy Road, just outside of downtown Asheville, NC. The sixth annual CiderFest in 2018 connected a record-setting 2,000 people with 24 national and local cider, mead and apple wine makers, and the 2019 event is expected to draw another sell-out crowd to sample sips from an even larger mix of local and national, small and large pourers. In addition to tasting cider and mead, guests can enjoy free bites of artisanal food including local cheeses, baked goods, caramels, ice cream, and more. This year's event will also welcome a mix of food trucks to offer paid meals for hungry cider-sippers throughout the afternoon. This quintessential family-friendly fall fest also offers arts and crafts from local vendors, live music, a kids zone, and community demos and workshops. For the third time this year, a limited number of VIT (Very Important Taster) tickets offer advance entry to the event a full hour early beginning at noon to enjoy exclusive access to tastings from our cider and mead makers and artisanal food vendors before the crowds arrive. You may even have the opportunity to sample some specialty, small-batch or limited-release ciders and meads that won't be available during the regular event. In addition to early access, VITs will also receive a complimentary commemorative CiderFest NC snifter. CiderFest NC is a carbon-neutral event and will be offsetting the event's footprint for each ticketholder through contributions to the nonprofit's Appalachian Offsets program, which is currently completing fundraising to install a solar system on the roof of Isaac Dickson Elementary School. Parking for all ticketholders will be available at AB Tech, 340 Victoria Road in Asheville, about two miles east of Carrier Park, with continuous shuttles running between the lot and the festival for the full duration of the event. Tickets go on sale on Fourth of July, and since the event has sold out in recent years, people are encouraged to plan ahead and buy their tickets early.

Raised funds are also used to purchase flags for our veterans’ graves.” On Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day Cub Scout and Boy Scout Troop 17 honor our deceased veterans at Bethel United Methodist Cemetery by placing flags on their graves. Boy Scouts Serving Others: Since 1910, over 4,000 young men in Western North Carolina have earned the coveted rank of Eagle Scout. Through their Eagle Scout service projects, thousands of community service hours have been conducted to benefit our communities. In addition, other Scouts from local Packs, Troops and Crews also perform thousands of additional service hours on an annual basis. Scouts in Western North Carolina will perform over 40,000 hours of community service in 2019. The Boy Scout slogan: "It is the mission of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) to serve others by helping to instill values in young people and, in other ways, to prepare them to make ethical choices during their lifetime in achieving their full potential.” Through the advancement program and peer group leadership scouting helps a child develop into a well-rounded young person. The Eagle Scout Award, the highest rank in scouting, is recognized around the world as a mark of excellence. In Boy Scouts, individual members take responsibility for the activities of the troop. By planning and organizing activities, they develop teamwork and learn to lead as well as follow. _________________________________________________________________________ Media Contact: Dan Little, Committee Chairman (828) 298-1452

Eleven-time Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Jamey Johnson is “one of the greatest country singers of our time,” according to the Washington Post. He is one of only a few people in the history of country music to win two Song of the Year Awards from both the CMA and ACMs.

His 2008 album, That Lonesome Song, was certified platinum for 1 million in sales, and his 2010 ambitious double album, The Guitar Song, received a gold certification.

In addition, he won two Song of the Year Trophies, for “Give It Away” and “In Color,” both from the Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association. He has received tremendous praise from The New York Times, Rolling Stone, The Wall Street Journal and other publications, many of which have hailed his albums as masterpieces.

In 2012, the Alabama native released his fifth studio album, a tribute project to late songwriter Hank Cochran. The Grammy-nominated Living for a Song: A Tribute to Hank Cochran paired him with Willie Nelson, Alison Krauss, Emmylou Harris, Ray Price, Elvis Costello, George Strait, Vince Gill and Merle Haggard.

In 2013, the Nashville Scene’s 13th annual Country Music Critics’ Poll named it the year’s best album. (Two years earlier, the same poll named Johnson’s The Guitar Song as the year’s best album, and Johnson himself as best male vocalist, best songwriter and artist of the year.)

CHARLIE PARR is the eponymous new album by the Minnesota-based folk blues artist the same name. The album is a collection of new songs and new studio versions of classics/audience favorites from throughout Parrs career and will be released September 27 on Red House Records. Recorded at Pachyderm Studio in Canon Falls, MN, CHARLIE PARR features Charlies trademark resonator guitar and 12-string with co-producer Liz Draper on bass, longtime collaborator Mikkel Beckmen on percussion, Jeff Mitchell on electric guitar, accordion, organ, backing vocals, and Dave Hundrieser on harmonica. The album is an honest and raw recording of Parr reflecting on himself and his career up to this point. Its a musical reckoning that came after a freak accident less than a year ago that forced him to relearn how to play guitar, causing him to take stock of the songs hes written over his lifetime. CHARLIE PARR is a stunning folk record that will surely stand the test of time, just like the man himself.The accident on August 3, 2018 could have put an end to Parrs career. Only a month earlier he had made his first appearance at the Newport Folk Festival, bookending a summer year of touring and career highpoints. Then, while skateboarding with his daughter along Lake Superior, he hit pavement. His right shoulder was busted into pieces and his ability to play guitar on stage again was suddenly in question. But, when playing the guitar is intertwined with who you are, not playing really isnt an option.He underwent surgery that left him with a metal plate and eight pins holding his reconstructed shoulder together. Within days, as soon as he could tabletop his guitar across his lap, Parr was playing again. Three weeks later he made a pain-filled return to the stage with an appearance on the Live from Big Top Chautauqua radio show.Its the defining thing in my life, Parr says. When you think about yourself, you think, Thats what I am. Im the guy that plays guitar. So what happens when that gets stripped out? If theres any way you can keep doing it, youre going to keep on.But not everything returned to the way it was; his outlook had been altered. Im not really that interested in careerism, Parr says. Part of the effect of the accident was a reaffirming of whats really important to me. Thats not a music career, its just making music. Thats what counts the most having pure motives and loving intention.By the time Parr hit the road again, he was reinvigorated to play music in a way he had not been for some time. He started digging out songs from early in his career.I can revisit any of them I want and meditate on what it was like to be seven years old again, curious about the guitar, obsessed with music and hoarding bike parts, he says. I can relive all the joyful times I had with my friends and family. I can grieve all over again my Dads passing; I can feel my stomach turn at the mountains of regret that Ive amassed and the people Ive hurt when Ive been too self-absorbed to take better care of my actions, but I cant change it. Songs are a different kind of history though, theyre not subject to the rules of time, they never died and they never will, and they grow and evolve right along with the rest of me. Parr had never really stopped playing those songs completely and, along the way, they had matured along with him. He wanted a chance to record them again to capture what they had become. I recorded some of those songs almost 20 years ago and, when I think about what my mind was like at that time, its not what it is now, he explains. In a way, Ive been re-writing them over and over again for the past two decades.Cheap Wine is a new recording of a longtime audience favorite, a sinister narrative sung from the point of view of a liquor store owner with a dark secret whos starting to crack. The plotline came from an idea for a novel that Parr eventually abandoned and mined for song ideas,Twenty-five Forty-one is a cover by the late Grant Hart, one-third of seminal Twin Cities punk rock band Husker Du. Charlies poignant take on the track is a moving testament to Harts underrated songwriting skills. Another cover finds Parr covering his idol, Minnesota folk blues legend Spider John Koerner, with a blistering version of Running Jumping Standing Still.John is a true cipher in my mind, a living embodiment of the folk process, Parr says. This song has been one of my favorite songs ever since I first heard it.On Stealing a Sailboat is a new song, a cautionary tale about choosing your friends wisely, he deadpans. By 2019, Parr is back on his grueling international tour schedule, mended and reinvigorated, covering the entire country alone in his car, occasionally cooking his vegan meals on his car manifold. Its a lonely existence that leaves a lot of time for reflection and reminiscing. Charlie Parr is the first album -- and there are 13 others -- that Parr he felt like putting his name on. Its a bit of the new, a bit of the old, and a bit of whats motivated and moved him. Most importantly, its an audio tour of his life and career to date and a celebration of more songs and stories to come.

Tuesday, October 15, 2019 6:15-8:15pm Pat Tuttle Children love to tell stories.  They make up stories as they play, they greet you every morning with, “Teacher, guess what?”, and they make friends and connect with their classmates through stories and interests. What can you do with these entertaining stories and how do they become learning opportunities and a part of your daily curriculum? Join us as we combine play, children’s stories, and literacy strategies to give preschool teachers and directors a no cost resource that will change the classroom community into richer emerging literacy practices and joy as each day a child is “author” dictating a story with a teacher. Watch how children take images in their mind, tell them to a teacher, and then bring them to life on the masking taped stage during circle time.  The story is acted out in front of peers, providing a rich, complete literacy learning experience along with the joy of sharing the author’s thoughts with their peers.   Learn how storytelling story acting will engage your imagination and curiosity each day for you and the children as you wait to see what the story will be, who will get to act, and what questions will be asked of the author. Children speak, listen, and participate in creating a unique literacy community when practiced consistently every day and their  social skills and language skills are sharpened. Learn more about what your children are thinking and turn these ideas into effective educational practice for all children in their social and literacy development. *Directors* – You can attend ANY training for free if one or more of your staff attends the same training.
